The opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday said its dispute resolution mechanism has been activated to resolve the crises facing the party.
National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan in a statement in Abuja said the decision was reached after an emergency meeting of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).
Seven members of the NWC resigned on Tuesday, alleging non consultation by the leadership.
Ologbodiyan said: “The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rose from a crucial meeting on Tuesday evening where it reviewed the state of the party, with a view to creating an atmosphere that will continue to engender stability within the party.
“The NWC assures that it has already activated the internal conflict resolution mechanism of the party to ensure amicable resolution of all issues.
“The NWC further assures all members of the party that it is taking urgent steps to ensure decisions that will strengthen our great party for the task ahead, particularly at this time Nigerians are looking up to the PDP for direction and solutions.
“Against this backdrop, the NWC urges all members to remain calm while assuring that the PDP remains stable as we work with majority of Nigerians to end the inept administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC), come 2023.”
